SILVESTER ANFANG: Kosmies Slachtafval CD (Aurora Borealis) - Only a couple of months after “Echte Vlaamse Geiten” was released by Eclipse, prolific Belgian free psych collective Silvester Anfang returns with another dose of their trademark “funeral folk”. “Kosmies Slachtafval” contains two lengthy improvised jams. The disc is kicked off with the appropriately confrontational "Mijn vader was een wolf en mijn moeder was een hoer"; a title I don’t believe you necessarily need to be from Belgium to read and understand! The track opens with an outstanding segment of heavy distorto-psych jamming which gives way after a few minutes to a more “free music” oriented style which is highlighted by droning keyboards and driving, improvised, percussive racket. The second and final track “Konfituur voor de Satanjeugd” begins with a lengthy segment that features an almost trance-inducing combination of late night organ drones, percussion, and somewhat minimal, meandering guitar work. Around the fifteen minute mark, a biting electric lead guitar enters the mix and soon conjures up a prominent, steady drum beat, which transforms the track into an awesome, droning, basement psych raga that continues until the close of the album. Dark and druggy, “Kosmies Slachtafval” is good 'til the last glow of the coal in the bowl!
